These grilled Ovaltine Panini sandwiches are amazingly simple to make and ready in less than 15 minutes. Perfect for a special lunch or brunch treat. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving warm.
- 1/4 cup OVALTINE Rich Chocolate Mix
- 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
- 6 slices whole-wheat or multigrain bread
- 1 banana, sliced
- 2 to 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- Powdered sugar (optional)
PREHEAT panini press to medium-high heat. (Alternately, once sandwiches are assembled, heat a grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat.)
COMBINE Ovaltine and cream cheese in a small bowl and stir until smooth. Spread Ovaltine mixture over three slices of bread. Top the Ovaltine mixture with a single layer of sliced bananas. Close the sandwiches and brush melted butter over the tops. (If using a grill pan or skillet, brush bottoms of sandwiches with butter, too.)
GRILL sandwiches for 2 to 3 minutes or until heated through and the bread is toasted. (For a grill pan, flip the sandwiches over and continue grilling until golden brown.) Sprinkle with powdered sugar; serve immediately.
*Cream cheese can be placed in microwave-safe bowl and heated for 15 seconds to soften. As well, peanut butter can be used in place of cream cheese.
